It is 2020 and summer has arrived—meaning the time is here to introduce those refreshing and vibrant summer perfumes to your fragrance collection.
As the days lengthen and the nights shorten, your favourite flowers blossom and the scents of the new season begin to fill the air. The summer-infused breeze carries with it a warmer feel, and the fashions of the colder months are retired for another year. It is 2020 and summer has arrived—meaning the time is here to introduce those refreshing and vibrant summer perfumes to your fragrance collection.
Choosing the right perfume and scent all year around can be challenging and you may not know where to begin. While the staple of light floral tones are a fantastic choice for your summer collection, some floral scents can be overwhelming when placed against the backdrop of summer. During the warmer months, perfumes with very sweet aromas and heavy floral blends should sometimes be saved for cooler days. Often, the best summer perfumes are the lighter and more refreshing options, as opposed to winter perfumes which are notably richer and warmer.
